Meant to write this review months ago but we had a great weekend at Heel Farm Barn. It is in such a great location in the countryside and surrounded by farm animals. The house has everything you need and has been really looked after. My favourite thing was the walk-in fridge...amazing!
We stayed local and just enjoyed the house each night.
would definitely rebook
Just spent a brilliant weekend celebrating my 60th birthday with a mixed group of friends - the setting and barn are stunning, we had everything we needed for a great time.
Ruth and Francesco were very helpful and the barn was even better in real life than the pictures!!
Would love to visit again
We stayed here for a 30th birthday party.
Ruth (the host) was very helpful and responded to queries very quickly, which was greatly appreciated.
The barn itself is beautiful and has been designed really well. It has great views of the countryside and considering we had 18 people staying, it never felt cramped. The walk-in fridge is definitely a big plus. Ruth even came out during the stay and gave us some supplies which we had run out of, which was really nice of her.
Whilst I still think this deserves a 5* rating, the only (minor) negative was that Ruth's husband Francesco wasn't very friendly when he came to inspect the property at the end. Considering we had spent a fair sum of money to stay there, it felt like a bit of an inquisition as to what had happened to the property, which made us leave with a slightly sour taste in our mouth. The best way I can describe it is that it felt like we had invaded his own home, which is not how you should be made to feel if you are renting it out for large groups.
I really don't want the above point to dilute the fact it's a brilliant brilliant place to stay.
Where do I begin, firstly Francesco was easy to communicate with and due to a slight issue with holiday lettings this was sorted in no time, on arrival Francesco was at the barn and welcomed us, giving us a tour of the house and informing us of previous damage which made us feel secure as many places will try and charge you for slight damage from previous guests, The house was amazing and on arrival the hot tub was already heated so could be used straight away, the house was huge and gave all guests there own space for sleeping which was nice, as booking such a bit house I was unsure whether there would be space for us all to sit and eat together but this was not there case as there was a large seating area and two ovens plus hobos, finally if the view, if countryside is what you are looking for the BOOK straight away because it was beautiful with fields and farms surround this stunning barn, I would definitely recommend this barn and would to stay again.
Thanks you Francesco.
